Anxiety and OCD can make our kids question everything, including their reality. This is different from a philosophical curiosity to understand the nature of the universe. These thoughts create sheer panic in our kids and teens.

In this week’s episode of the AT Parenting Survival Podcast I explore depersonalization, derealization and existential fears and talk about how we can help our kids when they are experiencing these struggles.
